Nodes Nomalizer

Top  Previous  Next

The node normalizer in Crash Magic is used by the program to provide a list of standard node names. Any time a list of  nodes is selected or displayed the nodes normalizer has provided the list of of the intersections.

 

 

Name: This is the name of the node normalizer.(This name should be the same name as the  Intersection normalizer when collision records contain node and intersection location data. Pd Programming recommends the name local for local node intersection names.)

 

Description: This field contains a description of the node normalizer.

 

Unique Delimiter: This value is used to separate the Node names from the unique 1 and 2 values when displayed to the user.

 

Unique Starters: This value is used to enclose the unique 1 and 2 values when displayed to the user.

 

Friendly Name Delimiter: This value is used to separate the node with the friendly name of the node that is displayed to the user.

 

Distinct Query: This drop down menu is used to specify the query of distinct node locations.

 

Case Sensitive:   Indicates that this normalizer should respect the case of node names

 

Node: This drop down menu is used to specify the field from the distinct nodes query that contains the node number. The drop down menu to the right specifies the data type of the field.

 

Unique 1: The first drop down allows the selection of a field from the distinct nodes query that specifies the node is unique to region like a county. The drop down menu to the right specifies the data type of the field. The last drop down box allows the user to select a lookup query for the unique 1 field.

 

Unique 2:  This drop down allows the selection of a field from the distinct node query that specifies the node is unique to an additional region. For example if Unique 1 specifies the county that an  node is located Unique 2 can specify the node is also unique to a city. The drop down menu to the right specifies the data type of the field. The last drop down box allows the user to select a dependent lookup query for the unique 2 field.

 

Friendly name: This drop down allows that selection of a friendly name field from the distinct nodes query. This friendly name will also be displayed to the user.
